Diderot Quartet in Free Concert at St. Patrick’s

YOUNGSTOWN – The Diderot Quartet will give a free concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, at St. Patrick’s Church, 1420 Oak Hill Ave.

The performance is part of the Pipino Performing Arts Series at Youngstown State University.

The Diderot String Quartet — named after the 18th-century French philosopher and Boccherini enthusiast Denis Diderot — brings a fresh approach to works of the 18th and 19th centuries.

Described as “emotional, riveting, and ultimately cathartic” by The Wall Street Journal, the members of Diderot came together in 2012 after having met at Oberlin Conservatory and The Juilliard School.

The four musicians share a background in historical performance and a passion for the string quartet genre and found the thrill of exploring the quartet repertoire on period instruments to be irresistible.
